What Does P0718 Code Mean?

    OBD-II Code P0718 is defined as a Input/Turbine Speed Sensor "A" Circuit Intermittent

    The Input Speed Sensor tells the Transmission Control Module (TCM) how fast the engine is spinning so the correct gear can be engaged. When the TCM receives an inaccurate signal from this sensor, it can't properly shift the vehicle from gear to gear as the vehicle needs to change speed and rates of acceleration. Most vehicles use the crankshaft position sensor for this information. The engine control module (PCM) or TCM will set P0718.

    P0718 Symptoms

    • Increased fuel consumption
    • Transmission may not shift properly

    Common Problems That Trigger the P0718 Code

    • Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) failure
    • Powertrain Control Module (PCM) failure
    • Transmission Control Module (TCM) failure
    • Wiring issue
